Yes, I had to do a twirl. And yes, I looked ridiculous.

Windy Autumn days call for swaths of pleated chiffon. Just make sure the skirt is long enough, as to avoid any embarrassing "accidents". My midi skirt curiosity continues, so I decided to order one from the petite line off of the Asos website. I figured it would be the perfect length, but it's actually quite a bit longer than I had anticipated. I've had it in my closet for over a month, contemplating daily whether I should take it to the tailor's shop for a hem. I decided against it, although I'm still unsure. What do you ladies think? Too long? I love the berry color and the movement it creates when I walk (or even when I'm standing still). The air hits it just right! So it's a keeper, despite some slight reservations. I think it works well year-round here in California.

If you haven't yet entered the giveaway I last blogged about, well what are you waiting for?! I hope you all are doing well today. It's raining here, so wish me luck driving around for work :)

  1. The length of the skirt looks good to me and I would be worried about how the hemming would turn out on that type of material (vs. a pencil skirt or something which seems more straightforward) so I say leave it! Love that jacket paired with hot pink! I haven't tried that color combination but it works great. (Seriously...that jacket goes with everything!)

  2. I love the twirl!! And I love this combo! I tried really hard to buy that jacket in another color, but nada in store. I should probably just order one! I really do love it with the skirt!

  3. I love the length on you! The color and pleats are beautiful. I always struggle ordering things online form places I don't know how things run because I can't try anything on at a local store.

  7. I'm constantly puzzled by what the 'right' length of things should be. But the only advice I can really give you is that you have to feel good in it.

    That said, I think this skirt looks great on you, and the color is gorgeous!
